Upanishads - Goads one to seek hidden Truth

The Butter Hidden in Milk,
The Fire Hidden in Wood,
The Oil Hidden in Seasme Seeds

Man has inherited a psycho-social system that is a miniature Universe in itself. It could be compared to the modern I-Pad or its equivalents The immensity of its internal dimensions are hidden and obscured by the smallness of its existential physical covering or 'KOSA', (Sheath), as the Thaittariya Upanishad says. in its Bhrigu Valli

Science is knowledge gained by the logically and scientifically disciplined mind. The Upanishads consider this only as 'Knowledge of the relative', and not of the absolute. It is knowledge about 'shadows, not about 'substance'. It is knowledge gained by the senses of perception. The Upanishads question the truth and validity of this sense-knowledge, which is gained by the conditioned mind. The vast Universe we see is enabled by the pupil of the eye only. For the totally blind man the contents of the Universe is only a matter of FAITH.

Another vital aspect of the Upanishads is that knowledge of it can only help one to admire and wonder at its contents, from a distance. To realise its lessons of truth, one needs dispassion and AWARENESS. One has to do the rest of the journey towards REALITY oneself, all alone. Only AWARENESS can be the aid. Even the 'individual awareness' gets merged, at the end of the journey, in the COSMIC AWARENESS that is BRAHMAN. It is like the salt doll getting into the Ocean to measure up its depth. It will not come back to tell its story, for it will have none, why


Swami Vivekananda said: " There is really no difference between matter, mind and spirit. They are only different phases of experiencing the ONE. This very world is seen by the five senses as matter, by the very wicked as Hell, by the good as Heaven, and by the perfect as God."

This ONE, which is the REALITY can be realised only as a TRANSCENDENTAL EXPERIENCE.

It is beyond the reach of the senses and the sense-bound mind. It is realised only by a pure Mind.

The end of all the exercise is to realise that there is nothing other than Brahman and, as a corollory, I am Brahman, all I perceive is the same Brahman, and nothing else. In this state of supreme awareness, all dichotomies, differences of any kind whatsoever disappear.
